Lot Notes
Following his apprenticeship with Carle Vanloo and a period ofgreat success in Paris which culminated in his nomination aspeintre de roi, De Loutherbourg left for London in 1771. He arrivedwith an introduction to the legendary actor and stage-manager DavidGarrick from Jean Monnet, the director of the Opra-Comique inParis, advising Garrick to commission De Loutherbourg to make threepaintings 'one, a sea-piece, another a landscape in the manner ofBerchem, and thirdly a battle scene'. Ignoring this, Garrickinstead employed him to design the scenery for the pantomime, ThePigmy Revels. De Loutherbourg left Drury Lane after several years,and in 1776 began to broaden the range of his artistic production,concentrating on popular landscapes and developing a keen eye forgenre and satire.
In 1781 De Loutherbourg was elected to the Royal Academy, anappointment which coincided with his involvement in a number of newprojects. His interests were far ranging: at one moment he wasproducing the 'Eidophusikon', a miniature theater in the style of apeep-show, imitating the effects of nature through a series ofmoving images; in the next, he was organizing a masked ball forWilliam Beckford at Fonthill Abbey.
The present work is both a topographical scene and an exercise insocial satire. It depicts the Serpentine Pond in Hyde Park whichfroze in winter, attracting people from all social classes, whocame to it to skate. De Loutherbourg portrayed several of hisfriends in this painting, including his wife, Lucy Paget (standingbehind the figures at the chair). Near her is the engraver V.M.Picot (who was also De Loutherbourg's partner from 1776 to 1782),John Webber (the cartographer who accompanied Captain Cook on histhird circumnavigation of the world) and Jean-Georges Noverre, theFrench-born choreographer and author of a seminal work on18th-century dance, Lettres sur la danse (1769). De Loutherbourghimself can be identified as the young gentleman seated on a chairwho is having his skates fitted (see for comparison Gainsborough'sportrait of the artist at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London, Inv.no. 66, which was painted in 1778). As a Frenchman transported toLondon, De Loutherbourg brought the sharp but affectionate eye ofan observant outsider to this comic scene of Englishmen at play. AWinter Morning appealed, in particular, to Thomas Rowlandson, whomust have seen it, together with its pendant, A Summer evening witha view of a road, when they were exhibited at the Royal Academy in1776; the copy that he drew of it is today in the British Museum.These paintings were among De Loutherbourg's most famous works, andwere the first of a number of depictions of popular amusementswhich the artist produced between 1776 and his brief withdrawalfrom public life around 1787. The popularity of the painting spreadwhen De Loutherbourg sent Winter and later Summer, to be used byMatthew Boulton as models for 'polygraphs', or mechanicalpaintings. The process was established in 1776 as a means of makingavailable, at low cost, reproductions true to the originalpainting's color. To make a polygraph, an acquatint plate was inkedin several colors and transferred with pressure onto a preparedcanvas; the copy was then touched up by hand and varnished.Boulton's mechanical paintings were only produced for four yearsbecause the expense of hand finishing made the processuneconomical.
The present painting is the primary version of A Winter Morningwith Skating in Hyde Park. Among the replica copies produced by DeLoutherbourg in response to popular demand are the versions in theMuse des Beaux-Arts, Strasbourg; the Maidstone Museum, Kent, and asigned work in a private Dutch collection. The primary version of ASummer Evening is now lost, but is known from a replica of circa1784-5, which was exhibited in 1973 at Kenwood House,London.
